Tea for two, three, four, or more - some drink it hot, some drink it cold.This summer we will have tea time every day at the History Workshop!  Learn about the rich global history of tea from the many legends surrounding its “discovery” in ancient China to the story of Colonial America and the famous Boston Tea Party.  Join us in sampling black tea, green tea, and herbal tea. You can see our indoor Camellia sinensis tea plant, then visit our garden to pick mint and lemon balm, popular herbs for tea.  Make a tea bag of black or herbal tea to take with you, practice proper tea etiquette, and choose some recipes for traditional foods eaten at tea time.

Included with general admission. Drop in anytime.
